You have to hand it to a television drama that can turn a lengthy political debate involving a clampdown on public sector early retirement into a slick thriller.
It sounds as dry as unbuttered toast, particularly when the nub of
the argument involves the funding of welfare reforms. But clever
makes sure that this is just a means to an end as Danish Prime Minister Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) finds herself challenged both at work and at home.
Her ex husband Phillip (Mikael Birkkjær) confronts her with the “we need to talk” moment that Birgitte has clearly been dreading.
Birgitte's government prepares to present a new welfare reform package, but there is unrest in the Labour Party when leader Bjorn Marrot comes under personal attack in the media and the prime minister senses a rebellion brewing. Meanwhile, the pressure grows on the home front when Philip announces he has a new girlfriend. Danish political drama, starring Sidse Babett Knudsen, Mikael Birkkjaer and Flemming Sorensen.
